                 Around

"Mix and blur the sounds that have surrounded me: distant construction, simple household sounds, and even the nearby sounds of nature in an urban environment with virtuosic piano technique. "

                                           How deep the valley is

"The piece is for piano and electronics that juxtaposes high-register pentatonic with low-register whole-tone harmonic colors. It is a brief meditation on insignificance and displacement, as if from the view of a nomad with no place to rest, interacting with a Max MSP app to process the amplified piano."

                                                       Mu Absence

"Unlike European landscape paintings, in Japanese landscape paintings, by placing “ma” in the center of the painting, it expresses the distinctive spatio-temporal aesthetics found in Japanese expressions. Mu Absence seeks to identify the imperceptible within the degrading reverberations between two notated sounds of the piano. ​ The multi media work explores the Japanese homonym with meanings such as "nothing", "dream", and "naught"."
